Postby Rennoldson » Sat Sep 10, 2016 7:01 pm

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Prior to 1166 guilt or innocence was mainly tested by various ordeals. During the Assize held at Clarendon Palace in that year, Henry II laid the first foundation of our present judicial system and paved the way for the Magna Carta.

Conference speakers: David Carpenter, John McNeill, Anthony Musson and Nicholas Vincent.

The programme will also include an opportunity to see some of the material from the site of Old Sarum, currently held in storage at Salisbury Museum.

Cost: £30 (£25 Friends of Clarendon Palace), to include tea and coffee, but not lunch. For more information or to book contact:

The event will take place in Salisbury Museum, The Kings House, 65 The Close, Salisbury
